On May 31, President Xi Jinping sent a telegram to President Bashar al-Assad to congratulate him on his re-election as President of the Syrian Arab Republic.

 

Xi Jinping pointed out in his congratulatory message that China and Syria are traditionally friendly, and Syria was one of the first Arab countries to establish diplomatic relations with New China. I attach great importance to the development of China-Syria relations and am willing to work with President Bashar to take the 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries as an opportunity to promote greater achievements in China-Syria relations. China firmly supports Syria in safeguarding its national sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, and will provide assistance to Syria in fighting novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, revitalizing its economy and improving people's livelihood to the best of its ability, so as to push China-Syria cooperation to a new level.
